SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — Investigators released stunning surveillance video Tuesday hoping that it will sparked tips that will lead then to a brazen gunman who threatened clerks with a high-powered rifle during a convenience store robbery spree.
Detectives said the robberies took place in San Jose the night of Oct. 18, 2015. Over the span of an hour, three suspects — one carrying a high-powered rifle with a scope — threatened clerks and demanded cash at several convenience stores.
